AUTHORBIO: Sean Bryan is a creative director and copywriter at a New York ad agency. Tom Murphy is a creative director at a New York ad agency.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2–When Claire discovers a gator on top of her hair, she is worried. However, Pierre assures her that she can do anything with him there–go to the fair, give her brother a scare, be a zillionaire, or eat an éclair. A convinced Claire attends ballet class, where everyone whispers and stares–because it's cool to have a gator up there. Repetition of the phrase with a gator up there paired with the singsong rhyme makes Bryan's slight and silly story great fun to read aloud. The text is placed in and around characters and objects and some of it is in big and bold font, which adds a nice visual appeal to the tale. Murphy's spare, childlike line drawings are done in pink, green, and yellow with plenty of white space. This simple color scheme fits the story to a tee. Pair this tale with Bryan's A Boy and His Bunny (Arcade, 2005) and David Small's Imogene's Antlers (Random, 1988) for a things-on-your-head-themed storytime.–Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH
